Tish Berlin Workshop

The Tish Berlin workshop was highly successful. The selection was varied from medieval to modern African freedom songs. Tish gave us an excellent background on each workshop piece without becoming pedantic. Her energy and sense of humor kept everybody engaged.

Thanks to the board for their work in putting together this event!

Lessons with Tish Berlin Available April 17

If you have been wondering how to get those high notes, or why you can’t get your lowest note to speak well, or how you can play with better tone, faster fingers, nimbler tongue – a private lesson may be just the thing for you. All topics covered, from technique to repertoire to ornamentation and more. Tish will help you play better, and to have more fun doing it.

There are still openings for private lessons on April 17 in Oak Park. Let us know if you would like to schedule one. Attendance at the workshop the next day not required.
